Primary Mental Health for KS1 + KS2 - 'Sometimes my brain hurts'

A valuable training opportunity as part of our response to what CYP have said in the OPS about emotional health and wellbeing as well as something that will count towards schools accreditation for GHLL. This course will lift the lid on the mystery that surrounds mental health and shows teachers and support staff how to deliver sessions that encourage children to talk about mental health.

Delegates will each receive a copy of The Primary Mental Health Handbook. It is a very comprehensive resource with background reading and information, a DVD and lesson plans for Key Stage 2. The handbook contains all the worksheets and plans that may be photocopied and staff attending the training will have the opportunity to try out some of the activities to enable them to feel more confident.

Please note that the £30 GHLL charge for this course is a contribution towards the cost of the Primary Mental Health Handbook.
